3- Eichiro Oda (One Piece)
Eiichiro Oda claimed that at age four he resolved to become a manga artist in order to avoid having to get a “real job”. Well, guess he’s loving his job and is known throughout the world for it. His biggest influence is Akira toriyama & he refers Masashi Kishimoto as both a friend and a rival to him!
4- Tite Kubo (Bleach)
Kubo stated that Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball taught him that all villains must be “strong, scary and cool” without exception, and added that to this day no fight scene has shocked him more than Trunks’ first appearance.
